In the past two years the locus of demand-driven or patron-driven acquisitions (PDA/DDA) has broadened beyond a single institution to include various academic library consortia. Facilitators from the Orbis Cascade Alliance, a 37-member early implementer (2011) of consortial DDA, and the 11-member State University Libraries Consortium in Florida, which is preparing to launch its own consortial program, will lead a discussion of the challenges and opportunities of shared PDA/DDA based on lessons learned. Special focus will be on the complexities of collection building among multiple institutions, planning for and evaluating success, and the role that vendor partners play in supporting consortial goals.

Some of the key issues and topics to be addressed by the panel include:

• Adding new content while controlling expenditures
• Assessment & program review
• Designing the shared plan; creating profiles/setting parameters
• Funding shared plans; sustainability of program
• Impact on collection development
• Publisher considerations
• Report generation for cost/usage/purchased titles
• Tech aspects & record management—review, de-duplication, delivery, removal
